Synopses & Reviews
From Dav Pilkey, creator of Captain Underpants, and acclaimed artist Dan Santat, an out-of-this-world friendship adventure with all-new full-color illustrations!
Ever wish you had a flying Robot for a best friend? Wouldn't it be great to have a Robot so big and powerful that nobody would ever mess with you again? Friendly Robots can be fun! But with giant friends come giant responsibilities. In this book, the evil Victor Von Vulture and his army of Voodoo Vultures from Venus are about to take over planet Earth. Only the super-smart tricks of Ricky and his Mighty Robot can send the bad guys packing for home!
Originally published in 2001, this edition features brand-new full-color illustrations and mini-comics throughout!
Praise for the RICKY RICOTTA'S MIGHTY ROBOT series (original editions, published 2000-2005)
"An adventure story with great appeal . . . With barely more text than a long easy-reader, this title will be a heaven-sent choice for kids with reading difficulties." --SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
"It's easy to see how Pilkey's high-action, easy-reading chapter novel with a comic book feel would appeal to younger readers. . . . Silly good fun." --KIRKUS
